Should you upgrade your smile with veneers or crowns? Although dental crowns have been known to provide an advanced level of durability and protection for damaged teeth, dental veneers are often discreet and more comfortable and provide you with the exact look your tooth needs.

One of the major advantages of using dental crowns is the defense they have to offer. Dental crowns are built to fully conceal a tooth above the gum line to prevent further damage from occurring. Dental crowns may take more tooth enamel removal to be able to bond to a tooth, but in the event that damage should occur, they can be easily repaired or replaced if required.

Dental veneers are constructed with visual aesthetics at the forefront, and although they only cover the fronts of teeth, veneers can be fully customized for the size, shape, rotation, and color each person desires. They are amazingly thin and can last over a decade. Dental veneers are also used to help correct minor misalignments with your smile including countless forms of malocclusion.
